South Shore

The South Shore is still holding up.  In fact to a recent question on the Forum, which asked if the North River was still "worth it", I’ll answer with an emphatic "yes".

Peter Sorensen had this bit about macs of the Gurnet.  Nows the time to get out, since you can expect them to move north at any moment…

 If you have a chart, go fish in the disposal site off the Gurnet. They have not been in too close. Plenty there last Sunday, only @ 15′ down. Go early before the top slack tide, it will be dead then. Fish the outgoing in Gooseneck, Cordage, Duxbury or Plymouth channels or in the cowyard. Put a little weight on the macs to get ‘em down. Hold on tight, this cold water will hold the big bass in the bay for a few more days at least.

Otherwise, not a lot of first hand reports.  I have been hearing reports about good catches coming from the Powder Point Bridge.  If I were fishing the area this weekend, I’d give strong consideration to checking out the rocks off Cohassett.  My log says it’s time that action should be heating up.


Mark N. Cahill has been writing and editing for since 1995. He started fishing in the mid-1960's and caught his first striper off World's End in Hingham in 1966. From there on in it was an obsession. He loves fishing for tuna, and fly fishing for striped bass. In a pinch, anything with fins will do...
